Head Start's new building to provide room for growth


SHERIDAN — After several years of seeking a permanent home, Absaroka, Inc. Head Start plans to move into its new facility on South Sheridan Avenue in August or September. 

The building, designed to the specifications needed for a child care facility, will allow the organization to serve more low-income families in the areas of school readiness and family wellbeing while also providing for future growth.

Head Start Director Amber Clark said the organization now owns the land and the building, primarily due to grant funding Head Start received for the project.

As of right now, the building is scheduled to be completed in August with a start of programs planned for September. That, though, is subject to availability of labor and supplies amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
